As the first leg of my European vacation winds down, once again I’ve had a wonderful time in Germany and the city of Darmstadt. Iron Monkey is the spot for your tattoos and Erik and his staff always take great care of the customers and me. Love you guys can’t wait to see you again. On to England…
I feel one of the more difficult tattoos to make are the ones you put on your friends. Every tattoo I do I give everything possible to make it the coolest tattoo I’ve ever done. The difference is that unlike most customers who you only see at the shop, your friends you see on a daily bases and you’ll always want to see the tattoo and I always think of what I could have made better or things I could have done differently. In the end it’s pretty cool to be able to tattoo your friends. To my friends that I shit on, my bad… On to my friend Anthony’s new tattoo.
When to Asheville North Carolina last week to help support my brother Ami in the opening of his new shop, not only was it one of the coolest city’s I’ve ever visited but it was a great reunion of friends from all our shops. One of the best weekends of my life. So glad I was able to be a part of it. If you’re in the Asheville North Carolina area I suggest you check it out

Last night was the annual NY INK Xmas party as always every one involved did a great job making it awesome. As usual seems as though the place we all love to be is at the shop, food was catered drinks were had and it was a great night…
Today was a little slow at the shop, people gearing up for Xmas and whatnot. At the request of Jess Leppard I stood in and got to model my good friends shirts for the shop Instagram, Luke is a great tattooer and a person who lives life by a simple creed, work hard and earn what you get. From this his “self made” motto has developed and is prominently displayed thru out his clothes line. Ck him out on twitter, Instagram or his website Luke Wessman
